About This Item

USA: The S.S. McClure Co.. Single Issue Magazine. A very rare copy of this, the first appearance of A Modern War For Independence, Chapter 6 of Part 2 of Ida Tarbell's ground-breaking History of the Standard Oil Company. This 18-page chapter deals with the united opposition of producers which developed against J.D. Rockefeller's heavy-handed dominance of their industry. Illustrated with photos of A.D. Wood, Lewis Emery Jr., Thomas W. Phillips, Peter Theobald, E.H. Jennings, David Kirk, Michael Murphy, James W. Lee, Hugh King, and Clarence Walker. With this work, Tarbell invented what is known today as investigative journalism. She was motivated to expose the methods of J.D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil as she felt he had unfairly damaged her father's oil business. The New York University Department of Journalism ranked this study as the fifth best work of 20th-century American journalism. Also included is a fascinating illustrated article by P.T. McGrath entitled The Peril of the Icebergs which discusses the horrors of ships colliding with icebergs, strongly foreshadowing the Titanic disaster eight years later. Dozens of glorious illustrated ads. Binding intact. Unmarked. Average wear. Lacking covers, backstrip, and half of page 85 which contained ads. A worthy vintage copy. . Fair. 1904. First Edition.
